SEARCHING FOR BRARA GIN-POLE

In our Shed we had a GIN POLE with all the attachments. After searching by board members, it cannot be found. We believe someone borrowed it in good faith to return it when done. If you borrowed our gin pole or know who did, please contact us so we can resume our plans to do BRARA tower maintenance. Thank you.
